Resedaceae is a family of generally herbaceous dicotyledonous plants comprising some 70 species in six genera:

* Caylusea
* Ochradenus
* Oligomeris
* Randonia
* Reseda
* Sesamoides

Recent molecular studies suggest that Oligomeris, Randonia and Ochradenus all arose from within the ranks of Reseda. This would imply that only three genera should be recognised, although as yet no nomenclatural changes have been made.[1]

The family includes annuals, biennials and perennials and is distributed in temperate to sub-tropical regions of the Europe, western Asia, the Middle East, North America, and South Africa.

Resedaceae was placed under the Cronquist system in the order Capparales. The APG II system places it in the order Brassicales.

Species include:

* Caylusea abyssinica
* Ochradenus socotranus
* Oligomeris linifolia
* Reseda lutea
